German with Arabic, Chinese, Japanese or Russian

This degree enables you to take a full range of German modules and to start learning either Arabic, Chinese, Japanese or Russian from beginner’s level. The Arabic, Chinese, Japanese or Russian course enables you to graduate with excellent standards of proficiency. Three quarters of your studies will be in German Studies. You will spend your year abroad either at a university or working as a language assistant in a country where German is spoken. In your final year, you can choose from a wide range of German optional modules on topics reflecting staff research specialisms, from business and society to political cinema, and from identity in the 18th century to contemporary migrant writing.
